it is in the public one. i need to start with celeste in connecticut. celeste. >> caller: hi, jim. from connecticut. first-time caller. i'm excited. >> thank you. >> caller: back in january you said you like catamaran, ctrx, when it was under its old name, xsa, up 72%. thank you so much. i heard it just signed with target. so how does that look? is it a hold or a sell? >> no, i don't think it's -- you own it. i know it's up a lot. so i understand it is hard to taking capital gains if capital gains go up. but i like the pharmacy benefits business. i also like cvs, reports next week. i want you to stay in this. i think it's a really, really good company. i'm glad that you bought it on our recommendation. let's go to sylvia in florida. sylvia. >> caller: hi, jim. it's so great to hear your voice. i'm a regular. >> thank you. >> caller: and i have a question for you about ibm. i've owned it since the beginning of the year and it's gone down significantly. although today it's gone up just a bit. and i understand that the company is changing what they give to the employees for their 401(k) interest. is t
. bob in connecticut, please, bob? >> caller: yes, jim. first of all, let me say boo-yah from connecticut. and, you know, a few months ago i bought a keurig coffee machine. i was so impressed, i bought the stock, which was green mountain, i paid $57 for it. my question to you is, since it's gone down so much, started to come back up, should i hold on to it? >> i'm not -- i happen to be a fan of the keurig too, but unlike victor kayem and the old ad, he was such a fan of remington, he bought the company. i don't want to buy green mountain. it's got the red flag, the red flag of my friend herb greenberg, and when herb raises issues, i don't go there. herb tells me where battlegrounds are, and when it comes to a battleground, i'd rather eat a cold corn dog. well, check that. i like to revisit stocks i talk about on "mad money," and in this case like hillshire, i think it needs more time, this is a long-term turn-around story. i suggest getting it on weakness. listen, this tastes better than the dog food i ate my first year of the show. after the break, i'll try to make you some m
have a newtown, connecticut facility. >> we do. we have about 400 associate there is and it really has been traumatic. last night we had a memorial service, 3,500 local people game from newtown, from danbury. it is a tragedy. many of our associates live in newtown, we have a major facility there and it just shows the fragility of life and i can speak as a parent that if you lose a child, nothing else matters. >> now, if someone wants to help, was there an organization that you would recommend that people help? >> they have set up a special section in the united way in danbury. and if you connect the united way danbury, they have an area where you can send funds and they're doing a lot of good work. >> okay. now your company itself has been pretty socially responsible. an issue that i thought was important is fuel, the footprint that your company has and how important this is to you. zero fuel now you use? >> it really is. it's a remarkable situation that we have, you know, we are an integrated company. we have operations in vermont and vermont can go minus 14 in winter and this year we
being up. all of a sudden then, we had the impacts of sandy, a tragedy up in newtown, connecticut, and just a lot of other factors that just put a damper on the season. >> so, it is fair to say that it started better than it ended now. >> it started better than it ended. there was a lot of excitement around black friday. i mean it was almost like the super bowl. they have all this advertising, drag people out, it's the biggest event of the year come shopping, and then week after that we had the pro bowl. there was no excitement. there was no reason to come out shopping. so big bang, but it kind of waned as we went into the season. >> how much of the season is in the books now? i mean, what's still left to happen? >> there's a couple of big days still coming. i think this weekend is a big weekend as people redeem gift cards, go into the stores, exchange items for what they're looking for. hopefully get that add-on sale and people start to take advantage of the clearance sale, i would say, though, 95% of it is in the books. we've probably got some strong days ahead of us, though, th
elections. it's likely to happen. and the school massacre in connecticut is now elevated gun control. democrats had been steering away from the issue out of political fear. connecticut changed the equation and the president will offer proposals in his state of the union. he'll face strong opposition from republicans and the gun lobby. that means bet on some action but not the sort of restrictions democratic liberals prefer. >> our thanks to john harwood. let's try to go back to mary thompson and see what is moving at the new york stock exchange. >> well, things are moving and my mike is finally working. as i mentioned earlier or was trying to mention, the dow had briefly dipped below 13,000. it is off the lows of the day. but again, wall street continues to keep watch on wall street or washington. most specifically the 3:00 meeting between the president and the leaders of congress. volumes today as you might expect, this is the second to last trading day of the new year, volumes are low. in fact, they're tracking below yesterday's levels, which were also very weak. as it stands right
